Whew, what a whirlwind! I did, however, edit all 320 pages of my latest novel.
One of the many things we discussed last week was the upcoming holidays and the chaos of coordinating many, many people's schedules.
It gets more complicated as we get older, doesn't it?
Between the day job, building a house, dealing with the flood, keeping an eye on my latest release and promotion--and oh yes! the holidays—writing time has evaporated. Instead of becoming frustrated, I’ve decided to consider it a chance to gather my thoughts. To allow the plot points of the next Holly and JC book to simmer. To let the characters nag at me to tell their story.
Strange as it may seem, I'm looking forward to the six hour flight back to Washington state when this conference ends. Six hours without email or a ringing phone. Sounds like writing heaven to me.
What about you, my writing friends? Are you finding time to write? (Do share how you manage that!)
My reading friends? Is curling up with a book a respite or a vision as fleeting as a Thanksgiving turkey's lifespan or a sugar plum fairy?
